Åstrand Guitars
Ted Åstrand

Åstrand Guitars is a one man shop based in Stockholm, Sweden, led by luthier Ted Åstrand. He specializes in custom steel-string guitars on a commission basis and is currently working full-time creating 8-10 guitars annually. Each part of the guitar is made completely by hand and with simple woodworking tools to achieve perfection both tonally and aesthetically. His main focus is building responsive and balanced guitars for the finger style genre but the tone and playability can be formed to meet the customer’s requirements.
 
»I take great pride in my work and shape and form each part of the guitar by hand. Since every instrument is made one by one and is completely handmade the possibilities are endless. Tone, playability, and an aesthetical approach are all critical to me. Not only the joy of playing a custom guitar should be an unforgettable experience but the journey of its creation.«

I feel very honored to be a part of the Holy Grail Guitar Show and to exhibit among the finest luthiers in Europe.
